50th Anniversary / End of School

This school year is ending but not without a grand goodbye!

Please join us on June 3rd as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary as a Washington County Career & Technology school. Tour the building and interact with current and former students and staff. We have planned a daylong event from 9:30 AM to 7:00 PM. WJPA will broadcast live from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.

It has been a wild year with many changes and excitement. I am hopeful that the community will rally around and support Western Area for the next fifty years. The excitement of the event will be us burying a time capsule to be opened in 25 years. Pictures of all of our students and staff will be enclosed in the capsule, as well as items made by our students, a face mask (just as a reminder!) and student comments. I hope you can come and join in the fun!

We also need your help. We will be looking for teachers to start our next school year. (Log on to our webpage and click the “Western Area is Hiring!” site.) Instructors are currently needed for our Auto Mechanics and HVAC programs. To qualify, candidates must have 4 years of working experience in those areas. Tired of working long hours in the heat? Want your summers off to spend time with your family? Our teachers work 188 days with a good salary and great benefits. If you are interested, or want more information, please contact us at 724-746-2890, Ext 114. We would like to have both positions filled before the 4th of July!

Again, please join us for our 50th Anniversary celebration and have a great summer!
